Those feeling anxious at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport might feel a bit better after visiting with Bailey.

Bailey, a 5-year-old golden retriever, is a therapy dog at the airport and has been doing her job for about a year.


"I knew, early on that she (Bailey) would make a great therapy dog because she just loves people," Bailey's handler said.

Bailey's handler talked about how rewarding it is to have people stop by to chat and pet Bailey.

"Just seeing the faces on people when they either come back from a flight or come through security or just walking around and people just saying, 'Oh my gosh, this is exactly what I needed right now.'"
